A Guitar Master

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A fansastic album by a guitarist who could do it all. His mastery of the styles he chose to study was unsurpassed. Listen to his beautiful orchestrations of these tunes. And while his solos are impecable, don't forget to pay close attention when he isn't playing a solo. His backup of the other musicians is superb.
My favorite.

(3 out of 5 stars)

"He plays fine and the band does as well. However a bit to "nice" and thus a bit boring. Especially when comparing the alternatives from the period, the style, the set-up and the instrumental colleauges available.
The 4- 5 star reviews are definitely out of range.

"To anyone who gives this less than five stars I dare you to play it better.
This is a masterpiece of playing equal to joe pass or kenny burrell."
